Our recent online webinars on biodiversity

As part of Virtual Beef Week (July 8th), there is an online presentation and interview with the Farmer's Journal on biodiversity policy, videos of on-farm practices to improve farmland biodiversity, and interviews with farmers implementing these practices as part of the BRIDE EIP. Also discussion of habitat quantity, quality and results-based payments. With myself, Catherine Keena and Daire Ó hUallacháin of Teagasc. (From 8.17 to 30 mins in the video.)

Teagasc Research Insights Webinars Dec 16th, 2020. In this talk, I give an overview of some of our research on the extent and distribution of farmland habitats at a national and farm scale. I also introduce results-based payments for delivery of biodiversity improvements. (From 1.30 to 19 mins in the video). 

In this webinar as part of the Burren Winterage School (Oct 2020), I discuss some of the principles of results-based approaches for biodiversity conservation. This is illustrated with examples from Irish projects, programmes and case studies that have been applying results-based approaches. It's only fitting that we presented our work back to the Winterage School, as this is where we first committed to publish the book of case studies on results-based payments! (From 30.50 to 54 min). 

In a recent youtube video about multi-species grassland mixtures by DLF, see Guylain Grange and Saoirse Cummins (Teagasc, Johnstown Castle) talk about their research (from 4.09 minutes), amid related research ongoing at UCD and WIT.
